A new Avengers: Age of Ultron international banner has been spotted in the wild, which reunites the original Avengers team. Standing in front of the new Avengers Tower (which used to be Stark Tower), we see Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and just a sliver of Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Together again, facing a sun that is about to set on their past adventures, these Marvel superheroes now face a new threat in Ultron, an android AI who is about to destroy their world. Take a look:

With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a break from stopping threats, Tony Stark creates Ultron, a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence, who can assess threats and control Stark's Iron Legion. »
The Hulk may be the strongest of The Avengers but he’s also the most unpredictable and uncontrollable, making him the most dangerous – in a bad way. We saw hints of this in The Avengers where he lost control on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and attacked Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and it’s an issue that Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) continually deals with in the comics.
Banner and The Hulk are both battling for control and despite Banner seemingly embracing the green beast for the climactic battle of New York at the end of The Avengers, and despite Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) expressing confidence in Banner’s wild side, Banner can never be fully in control. In the sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ultron aims to break the team, using a few super-powered individuals of his own and an army of robots, and »

San Diego - In the annals of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" video bombs at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, I'm fairly certain that Mark Ruffalo's is still the best. But Samuel L. Jackson definitely gives Ruffalo a run for his money with his blatant (albeit welcome) intrusion into our red carpet interview with Chris Evans: So what does Slj warn Chris not to do? For the answer to that question, and to hear Evans' explanation of what makes James Spader so intimidating in person (hint: "[It] feels like he's looking into your soul"), click on the video above for the full interview. "Avengers: Age of Ultron" hits theaters on May 1, 2015. »

Out this Friday, Joss Whedon: The Biography delves into the life of the filmmaker as told by author Amy Pascale, with a foreword by Nathan Fillion. In it, fans will get to peer into the making of Marvel's The Avengers. And one of the cooler things included is an email from star of the movie Tom Hiddleston, who plays the evil brother of Thor, Loki.
Joss, I am so excited I can hardly speak.
The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the chocolate in the wrapper of a Wonka Bar. I didn't know where to start. Like a classic actor I jumped in looking for Loki on every page, jumping back and forth, »

After the epic Marvel panel this past Saturday at the San Diego Comic-Con, Steve was able to speak with several cast members of the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. Chris Hemsworth is one of the more integral performers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, anchoring the Thor franchise and playing a key role in the Avengers, so naturally he was on the list. After the footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron brought the house down (by all accounts) in Hall H, Steve caught up with Hemsworth to talk about the film’s balance of action with writer/director Joss Whedon’s patented banter. He also addresses Ultron’s impact on the story, what it’s like having Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the fold and when he’s shooting Thor 3. Hit the jump for our Comic-Con interview with Chris Hemsworth. Also, make sure to check out our interviews with Chris Evans, »

James Brown biopic "Get On Up" with recent Hitfix interviewee Chadwick Boseman heads to theaters Friday. Tom Hiddleston and Ansel Elgort will play Hank Williams and Van Cliburn, respectively, soon. The N.W.A. flick has its cast. Andre 3000 already stepped up as Jimi Hendrix in "All Is By My Side," out just recently. Biopics have been a draw for awards voters too, like for "Ray" and "Walk the Line," for their actors and the music. So why wait? Might as well start planning ahead while our favorite artists are with us. In the gallery below, I spitball some actors and the contemporary musicians they could play. Undoubtedly, Tilda Swinton could play quite a few, but which first? Who looks like Taylor Swift? Who could be a doppelganger for Alicia Keys or Drake? How does Miley Cyrus fit in? And why are Benedict Cumberbatch and Mark Ruffalo on this list? »

This past weekend, the "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" movie peeps, hit up the big 2014 Comic-Con event in San Diego,CA, and served up this new movie pic while they were there. It gives a new look at Captain America's shield, and it definitely doesn't appear to be in the greatest of conditions, sporting a couple of large cracks. And the Cap doesn't appear to be anywhere in sight. The movie stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, and Paul Bettany. The new flick will bring the Marvel Universe's biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with "Marvel's The Avengers" director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel. It's set to hit theaters on May 1st, 2015. »
Though Kevin Smith and Ben Affleck have worked on five films together including classics like Chasing Amy and Dogma, looks like the two are no longer close -- and according to Smith, the surprising reason is Affleck's wife Jennifer Garner.
When Yahoo Movies asked noted comic book fan Smith about a potential Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice surprise at this year's Comic-Con and if Affleck was in town, Smith replied that he didn’t know because the two were not "f*cking tight" anymore.
Video: Ben Affleck -- Hollywood's Golden Boy
"I don't know, because we're not f*cking tight. I have not been [close with him] in decades. That's old Ben," he said. "He's got a wife [Jennifer Garner] that don't care for me at all. And plus, honestly, he probably don't care for me at all anymore. He's a triple-a-list »
Shortly after the Avengers: Age of Ultron panel in Hall H at Comic-Con Saturday night, I got to conduct video interviews with most of the cast in the press room. While the interviews had to be conducted in groups due to how many reporters were in attendance, we still managed to get a lot of great information from the cast. You can watch my Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans interviews by clicking the links. In addition to the cast of Avengers, I also got a few minutes with Marvel's Kevin Fiege. He talked about the great Joss Whedon dialogue in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the possibility of Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, how much Josh Brolin wearing the Infinity Gauntlet on stage indicates where things are going in the Marvel universe, the likelihood of making Thor a female down the road, the rumors that Joaquin Phoenix might play Doctor Strange, »

Now Comic Con has passed and the buzz surrounding Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy (read our review here) has temporarily subsided, it’s only natural that we bring you some news of next years biggest movie, Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
Over in San Diego we’ve seen the release of a number of concept posters showing off some of the film’s major talents, as well as a still showing off Black Widow’s transportation of choice, a brand new electric motorcycle. The motorcycle, known as Project Livewire from Harley Davidson, is not intended for sale to the public, but just as an introduction to the future world of electric transportation. Obviously The Avengers are able to pull a few strings. You can check out Harley Davidson’s official announcement after a set of awesomely illustrated posters that will probably be far more impressive than any Photoshopped job in the future. »

For months, we've known Ultron, the main baddie in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron, would control an enormous drone army. Heck, just this past weekend Marvel Studios released new posters with Ultron's minions battling The Hulk, Quicksilver, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Captain America and Iron Man. Below, is apparently armor from one of those drones and it was supposedly spotted a block away from where the San Diego Comic-Con convention took place.

We are excited to announce the premiere of a new Begin Again trailer, from The Weinstein Company. Director John Carney follows up his critically-acclaimed debut Once with this new musical drama, centering on a struggling musician (Keira Knightley) who connects with a downtrodden record label executive (Mark Ruffalo) during a New York City summer.

Let me tell you up front that, no, you won't be getting a glimpse of the movie scenes we described for you in the recap, but you will get to see Chris Hardwick moderate a panel that included Kevin Feige, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, and James Spader. As if that weren't enough star-power on display, the voice of Thanos himself, Josh Brolin, stole the show at the very end. Also starring Scarlett Johansson, Andy Serkis, Hayley Atwell, Don Cheadle, and Thomas Krestchmann, Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015. Hit the jump to watch the panel footage.

Since ABC aired their Marvel documentary earlier this year, we’ve known that Tony Stark, with the help of his Hulkbuster armor, would be taking on the Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The concept art above does little justice to how the actual showdown is shaping up so far — we got a glimpse of it in the Comic-Con footage. The extended Comic-Con preview confirmed that the Hulkbuster armor, like in the comics, encases Stark’s regular Iron Man armor. The studio put the Hulkbuster arm on display at their convention floor booth.
The big question is though, why are Iron Man and Hulk fighting at all? The last couple of times we saw the two heroes, their bromance was in full bloom. Tony Stark and Bruce Banner literally rode off into the sunset together at the end of The Avengers, and at the end of Iron Man 3, Banner »

Call it Mega-Hulk. "I think it's a moment we've all been dying to see, and getting it right is a big deal," said "Avengers: Age of Ultron" star Mark Ruffalo of the green guy's epic fight with Iron Man's "Hulkbuster" armor in the upcoming sequel. "There's been a lot of work going into it. I've been shooting motion capture on it for months. And we keep coming back, you know, doing it in little pieces. But it's a Hulk that we've never seen. It's a Hulk on top of a Hulk. It's the Hulk Hulking out." In other words: expect a whole lot of Hulk for your money come next May. To hear more from our chat with Ruffalo at San Diego Comic-Con - including talk of how the motion capture process allowed the actor to develop a deeper understanding of the Hulk's relationship with Bruce Banner - click »
